Brisbane Roar Poets Tour 12 July

Last Friday night, I was honoured to perform in Canberra with three fantastic poets from Brisbane. Darkwing Dubs, Angela Willock and Martin Ingle ended their Roar Poets tour performing to a full house at Smith's Alternative.

It was heart-warming to see so many Canberrans come out to support spoken word. The audience was receptive, engaged and interactive - very satisfying for a performer. It made me proud to be from Canberra.

Amelia Filmer-Sankey, Zoe Erskine and Ellie Malbon provided local support, working as MCs and offering small gifts of poetry between sets.

Here are the poems I performed, with links to where you might be able to find video, audio or words:

To the Flight Attendant on QF11 to LA

I will post the words to the flight attendant poem up here soon.

Darkwing Dubs' ramblings and links to videos, etc can be found here. Here is one of his videos - Secrets.

Angela Willock does not have a home on the internet yet, but here is a video of her performing Bus Stop, which she opened her set with on Friday night.

Martin Ingle is a film maker and poet. He has a bunch of stuff on his YouTube channel, BreadAndBullfights. Here is Martin performing My Generation, one of the poems he gave us at Smith's.
